glass diffuser problem
Got a small glass diffuser to try out for fun. Hooked it up to my DIY CO2 and couldn't get it to do anything so figured it was a pressure issue. Tried connecting it into an air pump thinking that would be sufficient but still no dice. I have seen people use glass diffusers with DIY CO2 before so the fact that I can't even get this thing to generate any bubbles even with an air pump seems odd. Any ideas?

If it's a plain glass diffuser, then it should be putting out bubbles from at least an air pump. Try pouring a little bleach on the ceramic disc and wait about 10 minutes then rinse it under the tap until the bleach smell is gone. Could you perhaps find a picture online of the type of diffuser it is?
